When I used to do extract, I would just let my sack hang....kinda air/drip dry. That way you didn't have to worry about squeezing the contents of your sack too hard releasing things you didn't want to come out.

Most trannies like a little pain..not sure about their sacks though.

/you may not squeeze mine.

Stick your sack in a colander and rinse your it with some 160ish degree water, about 2 quarts.

It's a trade off. To squeeze or to scald?

I like having a string tied around my sack, like a teabag, and dunking it well in the hot wort, but I don't really care to squeeze my sack.

I was going to post a witty response, but it looks like you guys got this thread in the bag.
